In celebration of Chinese New Year, adidas Basketball introduces a new footwear collection paying homage to the "Year of the Snake." The three-shoe pack includes the Rose 3.5, Tracy McGrady's TMAC 1 and the adizero Crazy Light 2.
The "Year of the Snake" Rose 3.5 features a black synthetic SprintWeb upper with a textured scale pattern to represent a snake's detailed skin. SprintFrame is done in chrome and metallic gold hits help the shoe stand out on the court.
With Tracy McGrady currently playing for the CBA's Qingdao Eagles, the TMAC 1 is an appropriate selection for the collection. The "Year of the Snake" TMAC 1 has a metallic upper and perforated toebox for an eye-catching look.
Lastly, the lightweight adizero Crazy Light 2 sports a scaled upper and shades of gold and turquoise. SprintWeb and SprintFrame enhance performance.
The Rose 3.5 ($180), TMAC 1 ($100) and adizero Crazy Light 2 ($140) are all available now at adidas retailers and adidasbasketball.com.
